TRUS-guided prostatic biopsy performed under local anaesthesia through a periprostatic infiltration has been proven superior to instillation of intrarectal anaesthetic creams such as 1 % lidocaine solution (Xylocaine® or lignocaine) 3 Symptoms, Signs, Clinical Examination, Primary Diagnostic Methods 19 [24].
